(Alan Menken, Howard Ashman)

Tale as old as time
Truth as it can be
Barely even friends
Than somebody bends

Just a little change
Small, to say the least
Both a little scared
Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same
Ever a surprise
Ever as before
Ever just as sure
As the sun will arise

Tale as old as time
Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange
Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun
Rising in the east
Tale as old as time
Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast.

    An empty street, an empty house a hole inside my heart all along the rooms are getting smaller i wonder how i wonder why i wonder where they are the days we had the songs we sang together i know my love im holding on forever to the love that seems faraway to find a place i love the most so i say a little prayer and hope my dreams will take me there where the skies are see you once again my love i try to read i go work laughing in my face but i cant seem to keep a simple thinkin oh no i know my love im holdin on forever to the love that seems faraway .
    So i say a little prayer and hope my dreams will take me there wher the fields are green see you once again my love to hold you in my arms to promise you my love to tell you form the heart what im thinkin of.. So i say a little prayer and hope my dreams will take me there where the skies are blue see you once again my love

    My meaning to beauty and the beast would be if you love someone and someone loves you it doesn't matter what you look like they will love you for you and don't ever change for any guy/girl

    Beauty is seen in the deep side of you.. Not by how you look like, not on how you want others to see you as you, but on how you project yourself.. That even others won't resists but to love you as you..
